Comment: Wait, 122L !? (Score 1) 277

A standard gasoline-powered car with a 122L capacity at 30mpg would be capable of traveling 960 miles.

What kind of "standard gasoline-powered car" that runs at 30mpg (forget about the odd units) has a 122L gas tank!?
My car only has 42L... I know larger cars would have bigger tanks, but likely don't get 30mpg.

So if we compare more realistic sizes with their weird mix of L and miles... A 42L tank might get 330 miles... Maybe better to compare with that. But then that wouldn't be highway driving... which I know I can do better then 30mpg.

I realize that, but then what colour is the ice? What colour is the dirt? This isn't for science, it is for general interest.
I realize that using the filters they have they can create enhanced colour images, and I think that might be exactly what they should do...
Do you really know it is grey? Ice can have some pretty amazing light distortion properties(go visit Alaska)... And not all rocks are grey.

I have a question... Does anyone know why are the photos in black and white? Is that for higher resolution, because of low/high light situations?

Ok nvm, found my answer here: Why are images from space probes always in black and white?

Still think they should take photos with RGB filters too so we can see what it would actually look like, you know, for PR photos...

Thing is, they are missing the research and citations...
For all we know, it could actually put kids who use both early at an advantage. They might not get dizzy in any situations. They might have better abilities to judge distances both real and virtual. They may have better hand eye coordination from "touching" things that aren't actually there. It might take a while to develop those skills just as a bilingual child takes longer developing language skills, but ultimately can get both languages to a near mastery level.
I'm not saying this is the case, but that there is no proof one way or the other.

Lets institute laws that apply to EVERYONE equally, it doesn't matter if you are a citizen, the rich, the poor, a police officer, a government official, or a corporate executive. If you are found guilty, the punishments actually apply (including prison time, I'm tired of listening to the excuses of judges who refuse to punish police who are caught red-handed committing perjury).

Ding ding ding, I think we have a winner here!

The difficult we do today; the impossible takes a little longer.
